Wow that's rediculous!! I have been working on the family farm for as long as I can remember and wouldn't have it any other way. I think they would be ruining kids childhoods by passing this.

I hate like heck for this to be the first thread I post to on in this forum, but this is ridiculous. I was driving tractors before I could reach the gas pedal in Dad's truck. This would be so impossible to enforce.

Wow is really all you can say. If Obama and his administration would come and sit in a high school for a week they would realize that this is freaking stupid. This really makes me mad. I grew up working on a farm and mowing grass and doing all the stuff that article is trying to get stopped. I drove a tractor doing everything on a cotton farm but plant ( because I couldn't drive the old 5020 JD strait enough) at 14. I believe hard work, working outside on a farm builds character, epecially at a young age, I do not understand the thinking behind this. Or lack there of. I work with high school kids everyday, and now more than ever they need to be out working like this, because the things they need to learn the most( respect, a work ethic, how to turn a wrench, a sense of pride for themselves) is all learned getting dirty working hard and earning your own check. Sorry for the rant I'm done.

Please!!! Rant some more!!

It's way past time for these candy-arse libtards to get away from the TV,Video Games,and computers....get off their arses and do something without crying somebody OWES them!!!

You wanna talk LAZY...come to LAZY LIBTARD MARYLAND!!!!!

These jack-arses want it all for nothing!!!

Not to mention the latest fashion is to grow a beard...just like Carl Marx....

These fag-arses know nothing of hard work...just if they chipped a nail....

Ya know what's worse???

Women want a girly man..

What ever happened to self pride,a man busting his arse to support the family,obvious smelling like work,and families were happy...............

Not today..........women want a puss they can control....

But still expect them to bring home the bacon----------

Thanks to the libtards...our nation has become a bunch of ***-sitting,lazy,want to be over-intelligent dunbasses---who know nothing

I learned to drive on a tractor, and like it was said above, I couldn't have reached the gas, brake, or clutch pedal on a car or truck when I did it.

Couldn't tell you what age I learned at, but it was pretty young. Learned on an Allis Chalmers WD-45, and was able to drive it, cause it had a hand clutch... LOL.
